Bruce Connor's film, Crossroads, containing archival footage of the Bikini Atoll atomic bomb tests in 1946, just blew me away. I couldn't believe all those American ships, obviously placed to observe and record but also, obviously, very much in harm's way. And I watched again and again as that swiftly growing radioactive cloud enveloped each of those ships. What were we thinking?!?
